Price-related product attributes available on Wish marketplace
Wish are adding the facility to add price-related product attributes which in some countries (UK, US, EU) is a legal requirement.
“To help merchants comply with applicable laws requiring price per unit of measurement to be displayed for products sold to or within the European Union, United Kingdom, and United States, merchants may now provide various unit price-related product attributes when adding/editing products manually or via CSV in Merchant Dashboard, or via API. These product attributes will be used to calculate and display unit price to customers on the Wish app and wish.com. Adding unit price attributes in order to display unit price is strongly encouraged for (but not limited to) products categorized as cleaning supplies, toiletries, beauty, cosmetics, personal care, and other product types sold in quantities or measurements.”
